Hank’s importance to the world is being solidly recognized as the Hank Williams Museum in Montgomery announces details of its annual Hank Williams birthday celebration.

I like the language the museum uses to announce the event: ” On Monday, September 17, 1923, the world received the gift of Hiram Williams and on Saturday, September 15, 2012, nearly 89 years later, the celebration of the gift of Hank continues!”

Highlights include a wreath laying at the Oakwood cemetery at 9am and a collectors fair with food and live music and disc jockey Dr. Sam from 10am till 5pm at the museum.

Detailed information is available in the NEWS section of the Hank Williams Museum website Here.
